Not Updated For Current Season
The masteries shown here are not yet updated for the current season, the guide author needs to set up the new masteries. As such, they will be different than the masteries you see in-game.
Armor Yellow's, MR Blue's will help you be more aggresive. # 1 choice
i personally choose Attack Dmg Red's to help my early game but if you feel like you'll need more armor pen then those given by your masteries and ruins by all means go take it! # 1 choice
Armor pen Red - substitute for attack dmg if your looking for a late game win # 2 choice
Armor pen Quints - to help us poke through the pesky armor! # 1 choice for me
Movement speed Quints - i personally like this because it gives me that extra movement speed to get in and out of fights (i personally dont think its needed if you go for boots of mobility). # 2 choice
realistically the choice is yours for what ruins you should get but these are my preferences and have worked well for me :)
Start off with a Dorans blade for the extra health and dmg.
port back and buy boots
port back buy brutalizer (You can finish up your boots before this if you prefer)
Now this is the choice you need to make between boots of mobility or Merc Treds. I love using boots of mobility since riven is such a mobile champion it helps me get around the map and into fights in a gif! altough in this build you will have enough movement speed from trinity force and if u decided to take movement quints get a merc tred so in case you get caught or they stun you when your trying to get that pesky teemo with 20- health * Merc treds always a good choice! * Boots of Mobility #1 Choice (for fun play) Merc Treds # 1 (This is some serious Sh*t!)
You can choose to get wriggles lantern or not but i like it since its an all around good item, helps with baron and dragon, gives you lifesteal to stay in lane and a bit of armor and dmg all around a good item for riven.
Port back for Trinity force item's
Port back for Warmags. at this point you will become tanky :)
Port back Sell Doran Blade for Atma's Bam super dmg!
Lets port back and finish that brutalizer shall we! ( you can finish this anytime in your game if you prefer)
port back and sell wriggles if you like and exchange it for Stark's or Blood Thirster :)
Ghost a must!
Ignite - really good spell to finish people off after your combo and ult or just during a fight if someone has a mundo just really make him angry :)
Exaust - also a really good spell for one v one fights or to just escape from an enemy, grab this if no one has it on your team :)
Ideally you will want to lane with someone that will take advantage of your stun and cc
my top choice would be...
You also want to be facing the right people riven can be shut down easily by champions like Garen and Yorick. try to co-ordinate with your team that you face champ X and champ Y or if its solo champ X a good champ to be facing would be lee sin since i believer that riven should easily roflstomp him with her mobility and dmg
Conclusion: High Dmg + stun + Noob = win :)
Rate, Comment, and have fun!
This build is still underconstruction and will be editing often :), please ignore the fact that it doesn't look pretty i just dont have the time or attention span to figure out how to do everything :)
